• Sometimes You Just Gotta Get Desperate

    Sometimes you have to get desperate. Sometimes you have to just stop everything you’re doing and cry out to God. You have to get to the place where you realize you literally can’t do it all on your own. You don’t have the strength, you don’t have the wisdom, you don’t have what it takes to get through. Sometimes you have to get desperate enough to get on your knees and simply tell God “I need you.” God isn’t going to force us to do things His way with His help, but things are 100 times easier when we do. You have to be willing to admit that things didn’t…

  • 3 Reasons to be Celibate | Lady in the Streets

    So I have been thinking about writing about sex and celibacy for awhile now but could never bring myself to do it. I don’t know if it’s because I still struggle with the temptation or if it’s a little too personal. I am a very private person and one thing I rarely ever talk about with people is my sex life.

  • Mastering Patience

    This summer I went through a period where God was revealing to me that there were certain things that I needed to work on. These things were patience, jealousy, anger, and pride. I spent a week studying each topic, and every day I found a new scripture that related to the topic. I’ve noticed recently that I’m still struggling a little bit with patience so I took another look at the scriptures and my notes. I decided to share them with you all just in case there’s anybody who is also having a hard time being patient and waiting on God’s timing.   Exodus 14:14: The Lord will fight for…
